AFTER launching himself into the public consciousness with the delectably smooth, jazz-inflected sounds of ‘Limbo’ back in February, Glasgow’s latest hot prospect Joesef is back with a new single ‘Loverboy’.
Immediately dismissing any notion that his debut single was a fluke, the new track is brimming with the same fascinating sonic originality and fierce intelligence that defined its predecessor. Led by that deeply distinctive vocal, so classic and nostalgic in its soulfulness, ‘Loverboy’ sees Joesef address the object of his affections over deep grooves and languid guitar rhythms. It’s an alluring combination; one that transports you to a smoky jazz lounge bar, steeped in romance and wistfulness and leaving you hooked onto his every word.
Debuted on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show last night, it’s another shining display of Joesef’s limitless potential. Set toplay a sold out Mash House in Edinburgh tonight to coincide with the release of the single, check out ‘Loverboy’ below.
